Art of the Cowgirl: Interview with Tammy Pate
Show Notes

In today's podcast, Cheyenne will interview cowgirl and entrepreneur, Tammy Pate. Tammy born and raised in Montana, and has a long family history rich with rodeo and ranching roots. Her parents raised her horseback and provided a childhood filled with horses and rodeo. Tammy attributes her love of the western lifestyle and especially her appreciation for the cowgirl spirit to her grandma Betty Kunesh, a true pioneer woman who could break horses as well as she can bake a pie. Along with being a horsewoman, Tammy has created her own name in the horsemanship world, one of her foundation events being “Experience Horses and Yoga,” at the Home Ranch in Colorado, which boasts the prestigious Relais and Chateaux mark of approval. Tammy is an artist and boot maker. She is passionate about the western lifestyle and the art and craftsmanship this way of life provides

In order to encourage and assist emerging artists of the western genre, Art of the Cowgirl provides a showcase through an annual gathering that celebrates cowgirls and their artistic contributions to western lifestyle. In so doing, it raises the necessary funds to support emerging artists in expanding their knowledge and skills via fellowships with master artists in their field.

Who is Cheyenne Wilson?

Cheyenne was fortunate to grow up on her family's working cattle ranch in southeastern Montana. This is where her intense love of horses and cattle began. She also learned to love and respect the land from a very young age. She runs black Angus cattle and raises half-draft horses with her husband and son. Their place is known as the Lazy Six Nine Ranch. Cheyenne, is also an enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Sioux tribe. She and her family reside and ranch on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. They also spend time in Montana in the Beartooth Mountains.

Cheyenne strives daily to spread positivity and awareness of modern-day ranching. One of her passions is empowering women involved in agriculture to live life at a higher level. She strives to perpetuate the ever-evolving role of women in agriculture through her blog (The Native Cowgirl), public speaking, photography, and social media outlets.

She loves helping rural entrepreneurs level up in what they are passionate about. This includes updating company branding, amplifying social media platforms, increasing website traffic, one-on-one coaching for business/personal growth, etc.

She has been able to build her business from the ground up earning 7-figures in only three years -- in the middle of nowhere.

She always says, "If I can do this, you can too!"
